We may be on the cusp of one of Nvidia's most exciting GPU launches in recent history, but Intel isn't letting us forget that its also got game in the GPU space. Soon, it will have more.
Very interesting. Hope it's competitive to make prices for GPU Goes down. Power goes up.
Yeah, we can only hope!
Interesting. But a 2020 release date!
2020 is not bad, considering Intel just stole Raja Koduri from AMD late last year.
Nvidia has dominated the market long enough and we will significantly benefit from a healthy competition. I hope intel are serious about entering this challenge. Interesting times ahead.
Yeah....Leave it to Intel to Drive prices down...
Awesome. More competition
At this point I won't believe it until it's physically on store shelves. They've said they're making one and teased it several times and never kept their word.
Raja Koduri, no slouch, by the way, left his job last November as chief architect for all things GPU for AMD (Vega and Navi) specifically to build this GPU at Intel. So, I think this thing is coming in 2020. How it compares to the competition is another story.
Yep. Intel are serious this time. And who can blame them? Why should Nvidia keep 80% of the GPU market to themselves?
I can only speculate they’d aim for the more budget-oriented market first and then work their way up. Though it would be interesting to see them go all-out. As mentioned above: the more competition, the better.
Yep. That's a graphics card alright. I am whelmed by this image!
I'm hopeful as most others here, in that this does well enough to put Nvidia in check, and make the prices more competitive. However..... this isn't Intel's first attempt to pierce the gpu market, and, I'm keeping expectations....... modest. Fingers crossed all the same.
I thought they weren't making a "gaming" GPU? Although I hope they do make gaming GPUs, we haven't had any competition in this space for so long. Look at what's happening with the CPU space, things have advanced so quickly all of a sudden, would never have happened if AMD didn't step up.
nothing has been confirmed for a "gaming" gpu. The article just alleges that because its a "Discrete" gpu and that Intel hired Raja Koduri formly Radeon Technologies group, that a gaming gpu is on the way. But nowhere does Intel say "This is a gaming gpu." officially anyway. This may be larrabee(gpgpu) all over again, and Intel was "serious" about that gpu as well and it was literally pulled before hitting shelves. So yeah i won't get my hopes up until it is physically on store shelves.
They will probably have it tie in some way with their CPU's. Since their CPU's have GPU capabilities, this would be a pseudo-sli. Sort of how AMD does it with their APU's.
